A Want for A Time of Need

I have never been a huge food storage fanantic and I have always liked our little "food room" as Jon calls it, downstairs in the basement, it has been, should I say, sufficient for our needs, meaning it has never been well stocked. I now want to have it well stocked and I actually wouldn't mind seeing our entire basement looking like a case lot sale gone mad grocery store. I made my first case lot purchase of black beans the other day and it was thrilling. I want more. I even bought a #10 can of Morning Moo's Low Fat Dry Milk Alternative. I have heard it is better tasting than the "other" powdered low fat dry milk, or "warm milk" as it is known around here. We will try it and find out. Now, should I travel to Dick's Market place in Centerville for their case lot sale, they have slightly lower prices than the Macey's around here?

I have had this same feeling. Now I have food everywhere, in the pantry, in the laundry room, under kids beds, in the shed. If it is a space with nothing in it, I have filled it and I want more. I now have big family and I want to take care of all of them. I wish I could do it all at once but I guess a little at a time is Ok.

Winegar's in Clearfield has lower prices than Macey's and it's not as far

Love it! We're doing the same thing at our house. Mark has plans to put food on every level of the house so that when the big earthquake hits, we should be able to get to something. :-)

I love a good case lot sale. My sister and I usually get together and hit the Smith's case lot sale and stock up. It's nice to have someone with you so you can actually push the cart out to your car....my family always teases that they'll know where to go in an emergency. I'm glad my house is seen as a place of refuge. How did the milk taste?
